recent weeks but perhaps not. we will see how it plays out. pam and dave. >> there's been change in the president's inner circle since he took office. is it possible jared kushner will be moved to a smaller role? >> reporter: well, yeah. i think there's some that argue maybe that happened. he won't play the prominent role in middle east peace he's would have if he hadn't lost his security clearance. so there's issues left to work out here in terms of what his role within the administration is going to be. >> all right. doug luzader live from washington. thank you. all right. 5:14 is the time. back over to sal to check in on traffic. hopefully no big problems for the commute. >> yeah. we are off to a decent start. we are looking at gilroy community and i am looking at the commute -- commute and i am looking at the commute from gilroy and san jose and people who drive from as far as way -- as far away as castroville. people will drive long
